Cancer Institute Community Day

 

10:30am-11:30am Laughter Yoga

Laughter Yoga helps to speed the healing process and reduce stress and anxiety by releasing endorphins while laughing. It fosters a positive attitude and the feeling of happiness. Laughter Yoga workouts are also good for the heart, diaphragm, abdominal, respiratory and facial muscles. After laughing, the positive effects can last up to 45 minutes, benefiting the cardiovascular system as well as reducing blood pressure.
